    ballcock options??

    Hi All,

    I have a Habu 32 with P20 conversion. The fuel system is running 3mm festo and I would like to install a ballcock valve in between the fuel pump and tank - to isolate the pump when fueling the tank. It seems though that the smallest Festo ball cock is 4mm.

    Does anyone know if a 3mm ballcock is available? another option would be to install a 3 to 4mm step connector on either side of the valve, or maybe change the tank to pump line to 4mm?

    Appreciate opinions on this.

    cheers

    The easiest way is to use one of these in each end of the Festo valve.

    That all creates quite a big installation in a small airframe. Why just not use a pipe clamping device on the tygon. Very cheap, light and works well. I use them in all my planes

    Hi,

    I used a 4mm pipe & 4mm festo valve from the UAT to the pump.
